He pointed out that he will also facilitate Gambia's participation in their first international Weightlifting qualifying round slated for 3rd May 2009.

"The lifters are already training in preparation of the event"

Koteh seized the opportunity to commend Africell for sponsoring his trip to Spain and recently to Tunis, where he also represented The Gambia in the Weightlifting Federation Africa electoral congress.

The event, which took place from 4-6 February 2009  elected Khaled Mohammed Mahlhel, president of the Libyan Weightlifting, Powerlifting & Bodybuilding federation as new president of the continental body.
